    One tip I learned years ago, if you put the frozen peas into the strainer or colander, then drain your just-cooked fettucini into it, the boiling water quick thaws your peas and they’re perfect to go right in. Saves a step and a little extra cooking :)

    I am crazy, nuts about fettuccini alfredo, but it always seemed to complicated to make. Or maybe it’s just me, either way I will definitely give it a try this weekend. Here’s hoping I don’t burn down the kitchen!

    I was confused at first because I didn’t think your fettucine alfredo had parmesan, but noted down in the bottom you included it. You’ll probably want to add the parmesan to the ingredient list! ; ) Sounds Great!

    I really enjoy your blog!

    i love the recipe for the fettucini. It’s really easy to make and I have always put the cheese in mine. Not normal??? I do think that the potatoes although my favorite potato is a double carb with the pasta. Last week, I made the fettucini and added brocolli, red pepper slices and mushrooms, which I had in the fridge already! I didn’t have to buy a thing and used the same ingredients for a couple of other dishes too.

    This is not Fettucini Alfredo. Alfredo is only fettucini, butter and cheese. Try it Rome at Alfredo alla Scrofa.
    6 lb. fettucini
    6 oz. butter – unsalted
    6 oz. Cheese – parmigiano 24 mesi

    Hi Erin,
    I used this today to make alfredo sauce for a slow-cooker lasagna recipe (it uses alfredo sauce in place of ricotta, etc). But I knew not to waste money on jarred alfredo! Have made this before as a white sauce and alfredo sauce….love it!
    Cooking now, can’t wait to try it in the lasagna :)
